  1. Good design tends to follow general principles that give designers overarching guidelines to work within. But for user experience and interface designers, there are also laws that govern the nitty-gritty. For instance, it’s helpful to know that the time it takes for a user to make a decision increases when there are more complex choices–known as Hick’s Law–or that because users spend most of their time on other websites, they want yours to work similarly to what they know–the premise of Jakob’s Law.

  4. Everything about your website — from the colors you use to the placement of your buttons — ties into your conversion rates.

    The experience your users have on your website will not only determine your conversion rates, but may even be the difference between whether visitors choose to stay on your site or bounce away. You likely have spent a lot of time and effort getting traffic to your website, so the last thing you want is to turn those visitors off.

  5. In my previous blog post 6 Design Alternatives to Avoid (Evil) Slideshows, I outlined six design alternatives to avoid slideshows. The response to that blog post was great — who knew there were so many kindred spirits who disliked slideshows?

    From the feedback I received, the number one question was why are slideshows so bad in the first place?

  7. To wean users off their devices, UX designers can deploy the very tricks that made their products so addictive in the first place, writes Bruce Nussbaum.

    The defining change in the field of design that brought design, finally, to the attention of Silicon Valley was the rise of UX. The ability to design great engagements for consumers of mobile technology added enormous value to high-tech companies— and to the design profession itself. Designers finally moved from the periphery to the center of business as engineers and coders recognized the critical importance of a designed experience. In the past decade, design and technology have morphed into a single product process.

  8. UX expert Gareth Dunlop explores the challenging question faced by many a designer: what do customers actually want?

    The classic criticism levelled at consultants of many hues is that they ask for your watch, then tell you the time. They are notorious for asking lots of questions and reporting back with little more than a glorified transcription in a 50-page report, 40 pages of which are part of an off-the-shelf template.

  10. This article follows UX 101 for Virtual and Mixed Reality — Part 1: Physicality

    Designers working with virtual reality have to create experiences that work in a 3D environment. That environment can be entirely simulated (Virtual Reality) or overlaid onto our real one (Mixed Reality). As humans we navigate 3D environments constantly, and our senses allow us to do so expertly. Many aspects of VR rely on these same senses.
